Re: cron doesn't start at boot up?


# update-rc.d cron defaults

I had to add the links for cron after installing it to have it start
at boot time for run levels 2-5.

You should probably read about the boot process information in
# info debian
under 'Customizing' question 11.3 and 11.4

There is a good description of what happens at boot time and how to
change it.

If cron is running it is supposed to process the file in /etc/crontab
and on my system this is what starts the daily/weekly/monthly jobs.

Good luck,
